ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01466751
First received: November 3, 2011
Last updated: November 17, 2014

  Purpose

The present study will explore the effectiveness of a computer based neurobehavioral intervention in alleviating symptoms and improving emotion regulation in psychiatric populations. It will increase understanding of psychopathology at a neural-circuit level and aid development of new non-pharmacological treatment for emotion regulatory deficits.
